I have driven the fortuner 2007 for 300 km, test driven the ford everest and the montero when I was looking for a midsize SUV to buy. Now I own a 2009 montero sport 2.5l due to its superior driving comfort, nimble handling, high ground clearance (rocky mountain off-road travel), spacious and variable luggage space. The right combination for a 900km round trip to the mountainous province of Abra to Manila and back. Less fatigue for a very long distance travel. Fuel consumption is not bad either @ 10+ km/liter at 140 km/hr speed at nlex & sctex (not yet caught.. hehehe).
